Ronaldo goal gets applause, boos amid allegation of rape

He leaped into the air with an emphatic double fist pump, as he’s often marked his goals, and then let his teammates congratulate him.
Just over a week ago, Kathryn Mayorga filed a civil lawsuit saying she was raped by Ronaldo in Las Vegas in 2009. Police have reopened an investigation. Ronaldo has denied the accusation. He was not available for questions after the match.
